Community Members

Our coalition has sent letters to the Portland City Council, Portland’s Comprehensive Plan Update, and ODOT’s Value Pricing Committee. These letters have in total received 1,257 signatures from Oregonians across the region (and across the state). Feel free to peruse these additional comments in support of our work here.

Would you like to sign our letter? Our list will be updated biweekly. We promise not to bug you too much; every name helps us show the demonstrable citizen concern about this $450 million freeway.  Please join us HERE.
